For quite some time, I've agonized that, while outspoken, I color everything I say and write depending on the company or forum in which I find myself--in my community, on my campus, on a given discussion board and so forth.
Consequently, after long thought, I created this blog to write what I really think, honestly and without censureship.
One major obstacle to this for me has been that I don't like to write anonymously--I'd rather sign my name and stand behind my claims and observations. However, I've finally had to admit to myself that I live in circles where I just can't do that and be open, bold, and experimental in my writing and ideas. So, I've caved and created this space.
Rest assured I will still write as if I were signing my real name, and I trust visitors who comment will do the same.
A space where I can write, think, and share freely can only lead to growth. I hope you feel the same way. Please join the conversation--I truly want your thoughts too.
A newly freed Writer.
